Easy mocktail recipes for summer
Nothing says summer like sitting in the sun with a cold, refreshing drink. Whether you’re dining al-fresco with friends or you’re lounging in the garden with a good book, a tasty tipple can make a sunny day even better.
If you’re looking for a fun drink to make that’s alcohol-free, our easy mocktail recipes for summer are exactly what you need.
Easy Peach Bellini Mocktail
Peach bellinis are traditionally made with peach puree and champagne and are perfect for special occasions. If you’d prefer to make an alcohol-free toast, try our easy peach bellini mocktail that uses orange and grapefruit soda water instead of champagne. It’s great for adding a touch of elegance to a party so you can cheers to something special.
2 tbsp. peach puree (or 1 peach to make your own), chilled
slice of pink grapefruit to garnish (optional)
Glassware: Flute or coupe glass
1. If you’re making your puree from scratch, peel and de-seed your peach and pop in a blender until smooth.
2. Add one tablespoon of peach puree to each glass
3. Top your glass with orange and grapefruit soda water and stir
4. Add a slice of grapefruit to your glass and serve
Easy Mojito Mocktail
An easy mocktail recipe for summer that’s a huge crowd-pleaser is an alcohol-free mojito. Served ice cold, this mocktail is simple, delicious and made from just a few ingredients that you can grab from the supermarket. Our alcohol-free recipe is similar to our classic mojito recipes, but we’ve made this one mintier for an extra kick.
1 cube sugar
3 mint sprigs
1 can Dash lime and mint soda
handful of ice
1. Add your sugar cube, mint leaves and juice from half a lime to a bowl and crush with the back of a spoon. This will bruise the mint to release its flavours and blend the lime and sugar.
2. Once crushed, add your mixture to a glass of ice and top with lime and mint soda.
3. Stir thoroughly, topping with wedges of your leftover lime.
Easy Moscow Mule Recipe
A Moscow mule is considered to be one of the best summer drinks because of its refreshing taste and icy serving temperature. We’d argue that our Moscow mule mocktail is even more refreshing because replacing the vodka with the rhubarb kick keeps it lighter and fruitier.
3 mint sprigs
handful of ice
Glassware: Tumbler, chilled (a traditional Moscow mule is served in a copper mug, so feel free to use that if you have one)
1. Add the juice of half the lime to a bowl along with your mint. Crush with the back of a spoon to bruise and blend.
2. Add your crushed ingredients to a glass with ice and muddle.
3. Top with rhubarb and ginger soda water, then garnish with lime wedges
